Arlotta Stadium is the home for the Notre Dame men's and women's lacrosse programs. Construction on the stadium began in August of 2008 and was completed in the fall of 2009. The state-of-the-art facility features lights and an artificial turf field and has a permanent seating capacity of approximately 2,500 in the west grandstand, including VIP boxes flanking the main team entrance. Additional seating is available on a grass berm located on the east end of the grounds.

The stadium offers upgraded and expanded restroom and concession areas, elevator access and handicapped reserved seating on the main concourse level, as well as numerous amenities for both Fighting Irish lacrosse programs (expansive locker rooms with custom-made wood lockers, spacious team lounges with flat-screen plasma TVs and high-speed Internet access, and a fully-equipped athletic training center).

The press box has over 20 seats for staff and media in addition to three broadcast booths, which are valuable for the national coverage both programs receive.

Arlotta Stadium opened its doors on Oct. 16, 2009, as the Fighting Irish men's team played host to the Iroquois National Team in an exhibition contest. The stadium's official dedication took place the following day.

The Notre Dame women's squad faced Dartmouth on March 7, 2010, in the first regular-season contest held at Arlotta Stadium. The Irish men played their first regular-season game at the facility on March 16, 2010, against Denver.

On April 28, 2012, the Notre Dame men played host to Syracuse in front of a maximum-capacity crowd of 4,522. The Irish men also have played four NCAA tournament contests at Arlotta Stadium.

The stadium is named after Notre Dame graduate John Arlotta, president and chief executive officer of Denver-based Coram Inc. He and his wife, Bobbie, pledged the lead gift toward the stadium. The Arlotta children - Mindy, Andy and Jon - also pledged an additional gift from The Arlotta Family Foundation toward the project. In addition to their generous donation, alumni and friends of the lacrosse programs donated over two million dollars.

Arlotta Stadium is part of the long-term athletics facilities master plan that has already added new stadiums for softball, soccer, track and field, plus three relocated football practice fields (two of them artificial turf), all in the area east and southeast of Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center.

Arlotta Stadium replaced Moose Krause Stadium, which served as the outdoor venue for both lacrosse programs. The teams also have the ability to play/practice indoors at the Loftus Sports Center.
